Chairman and Serb member of the BiH Presidency Milorad Dodik claimed that Josep Borrell, EU High Representative and Vice President of the European Commission, expected to Sarajevo on Saturday to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Dayton Peace Agreement, does not seem to be familiar with the content of the Agreement.
“In a column he wrote for the federal media analyzing the situation in BiH, Borrell does not mention the essence of the Dayton Peace Agreement, the entities or nations he obviously is not familiar with, but rather mentions people, which is a huge omission given his top-tier position within the EU”, Dodik told SRNA when asked to comment on Borrell’s column published in the federal media, in which he speaks of an alleged centralized BiH.
Dodik characterized Borrell’s ignorance of the Dayton Peace Agreement as undoubted omission occurring at the very moment he comes to mark 25th anniversary of the Agreement and the Constitution, which clearly read that BiH is composed of two entities and three constituent peoples.
“Borrell thus excludes entities and peoples in his column on his own, speaking instead -based on his writings, of a centralized BiH that does not exist as such. The differences between Borrell and the BiH Presidency are obviously huge”, Dodik pointed out.
He adds that Borrell “showed extraordinary ignorance, but also tendentiousness in the part of the column regarding the alleged genocide in BiH”.
“Borrell should have known that there is no decision on the matter by any political body in BiH, just as he should have known that there is a Serb community in BiH who do not recognise and will never admit false accusations regarding an alleged genocide during the war. That should be respected, not ignored, because it is about the constituent people in BiH, instead of him falling for the theory created by only one people”, said Dodik.
He claims it is Borrell who used the rhetoric of historical revisionism, also used one-sidedly in BiH, to falsify historical facts.
The chairman and the Serb member of the BiH Presidency assessed that, according to all aforementioned, there is no doubt that the meeting with the members of the Presidency of BiH announced for tomorrow will be burdened by these differences in the comprehension of the Dayton Peace Agreement and the state of BiH. /ibna
